    You know I had been considering getting some of those bobbers and have
    been reading the stuff on their website. Just seemed a little pricey for
    bobbers. Now I think I'll try them out this season since I know someone
    else is using them too. I just didn't want to be the only guy fishing with
    the Snoopy fishing reel, you know?

    trust me i push them on all my friends and at first they say naw but after fishing with them on a sand pit and catching more fish than them they say give jack loves number id like to buy one i say just get online if u fish a sand pit this bobber will out perform any other bobber out there
    the only way to loose one is to get hung up and bad
    because if you are on a boat they dont move so you can get right up on them and snatch them right back up but we use them on the blue and catch gar with them two

    I agree.
    The company that makes them will stand behind them. I bought 10 of them just to have around when I need one.
    I'll buy more when I need them.

    I have used night crawlers, shad, shrimp and even chicken livers in the local lakes.
    Not many sand pits around here.

    With all due respect to police officers cops are just of a different breed. In my small town I'm from cops haven't been shot at in over 25 years, yet they are still not friendly. The old timers tell stories about how cops would pick them up for drunk driving take their keys and press no charges and give them a ride home, where have those days gone? Now with a .08 blood alcohol limit half the people who get DUI's probably aren't even drunk. The beating on video are bad, but I have a feeling some of those people deserve it. Now I have a story about a friend of mine who on the eve of his 21st birthday was drinking at a friend house and was walking home drunk. It was 11 15 at night 45 minutes before he officially turned 21. He was 3 blocks from his house and a cop pulled up, but to his delight this happened to be his brothers best friend growing up. Guess what 45 minutes shy of 21 WALKING NOT DRIVING, and the fact it was 1 of his brothers best friends he still got a public intoxication and underage drinking charge instead of a 3 block ride to his house. This story explains how all the cops are in my small town, and I wouldn't call that friendly. I will say I've never been in trouble with the law which I am lucky for. I will also say some cops are seving and protecting the people like they were designed to do and to those cops I say thank you. But most cops are looking for trouble instead of trying to stop trouble. And that's all I have to say about that.

    Well, back to bobbers! Bobber with a brain is a neat concept where the
    bobber adjusts to the distance to the bottom after the cast. Their entire
    setup strives to put a nearly vertical line between a ceramic bell sinker
    and a bobber that half sinks itself using a filling water chamber in the
    down side of the bobber where the line is lightly held by a dropping
    magnetized ball at the bottom of the water chamber. Unlike most bobbers,
    the line goes in the bottom of the bobber and out the top. From the top
    of the bobber it goes to attach to hooks set at two different depths and
    then to the ceramic bell sinker on the bottom. When the fish wacks the
    bait, the bobber doesn't go down the same way. The brightly colored top
    lays down on the water's surface and during the time you are reaching
    for the rod, the situation under water becomes critical. The bobber may
    stand back up. If it doesn't the fight is on.
    My initial reaction to seeing this system diagrammed in the site mentioned
    in earlier posts on this thread was that it could work, but like a lot of other
    ideas on paper there could be some reason it might not work. Dare I
    fish this without risk of ridicule? I am encouraged to try now.
